Momster was how Nice Monster all began.

Mom + Monster = Momster, a sort of scribbly hair creature that is born from a young girls sketch book. The main influences here were Pan Labyrinth and Miyazaki, mixing rough reality with a creative and fairytale like characters.

At the time it was a really ambitious project and to create it we had great support from the then UK Film Council.  Here are several images I put together for the pitch to help the commissioner buy into the fairytale/suburbia themes laid out within the film.
